  2. Welcome to the forums... I know 0 about bike mechanics, but as I work in IT have you tried turning it off and on again? :)

  3. Hi and welcome Risk. First thing to do, if you haven't already, is to get rid of all the old fuel, including that in the carby float bowls, then put some fresh stuff in. No good just draining what's in the tank as you'll still have trouble getting it to fire because of stale fuel in the carbs.

    Good luck.
  4. welcome aboard got luck with the bike
